Statement Of Sen. Alexander - Iraqi Elections

Posted on January 30, 2005

We should salute the courage of Iraqi voters and of American military men and women and now see this mission through to the end - helping to preserve security while training Iraqis to defend themselves. To appreciate this inspiring day, it helps to remember that after our Constitution was adopted, it took 133 years to give women the right to vote and 190 years before African Americans could freely vote in every part of the United States.
